Deciding whether Tåsingegade kollegiet is right for you
Tåsingegade Kollegiet is reserved for students.

Tåsingegade Kollegiet is a good option for the independent student who wants to have much privacy while still being in close proximity to other students, and who wants to live in one of the mundane areas.
The shared rooms are ideal for the student who wants to keep a low budget and who doesnt have a problem living very closely with a roommate.

Our various housing is not identically furnished; places have different sizes lay-outs and the furniture has been acquired at different points in time.

You are welcome to put in furniture of your own, BUT you are also required to remove it again upon departure - if you do not, the UCPH Housing Foundation will have to remove it on your behalf and forward the bill (easily a few thousand DKK) directly to you.

Each room has a private bathroom.

Each room has a private kitchenette equipped with basic kitchen utensils such as a pot, a pan, cutlery, cups, glasses and plates. The kitchenette has two cooking plates and a small refrigerator.

Common kitchens

On some of the floors there are common kitchens which you are welcome to use. Please make sure you clean up after yourself so it is nice for everyone to use.

From February 1st 2016: The common kitchens will be locked at 10pm. This measure is taken since many tenants unfortunately neglect to comply with the house rules.


Laundry facilities are available in the building. Laundry is not included in the rent but should be paid separately.
